What are your favorite foreign language movies?

Tools    





Say hello to my little friend!
I just noticed that I have reached 25 posts. So I said why not to make a thread.

I have seen many foreign language movies, and I still have more on my watchlist. I was wondering if you got good foreign language movies for me to watch and rate.

My favorites are:
The Intouchables
Oldboy
The Hunt
The Lives of Others
City of God
Incendies
The Secret in Their Eyes.


The Seventh Seal and Pan's Labyrinth would come next, I think.

Ye, I really fell in love with cinema of Denmark when I watched The Hunt (2012)

Some of you suggested Rashomon, I think I am watching it tonight. I always wanted to watch Seven Samurai, but it's a 4 hours, black & white, action and Japenese movie; I can't even think of a more boring description.



Aguirre, the Wrath of God
City of God
Rashomon
The Orphanage
Pans Labyrinth
Repulsion
The Wailing
Spirited Away
Triplets of Belleville
M
Metropolis
Downfall
Time Crimes
The Raid: Redemption
Man Bites Dog
Tetsuo, the Iron Man

The last two I really enjoyed but are probably not for everybody. In fact, I usually only recommend these to friends/family I want to mess with a bit.



Please hold your applause till after the me.
Princess Mononoke, (although the english dub is still fantastic.)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is easily my favorite live-action one.

A few others though.

Seven Samurai
Pans Labyrinth
8 1/2
Seventh Seal
Spirited Away
Old Boy
Ran
Hard Boiled
Metropolis
Your Name
Ringu

I have seen Princess Monoke. I watched the dubbed version. It's a great animated movie, but I think Spirited Away, The Grave of The Fireflies and Your Name are better.

Nice.
I love this movie. It fairly blew me away.



Mine is La Belle et La Bete (1946) Directed by Jean Cocteau. I love the way the director moves things within the film and Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale.
